Expected Behaviour:

Screen graphing not looking correct

Actual Behaviour:

Graphing has rises and valleys in a cyclical manner and only showing 2 clients

Debug Token:

Nothing abnormal is showing in your debug log. What are the outputs of these commands from the Pi terminal:

echo ">stats" | nc localhost 4711

echo ">top-clients withzero (15)" | nc localhost 4711

Also, please post a screen shot of what you are seeing on your dashboard (you can paste the snap directly into a reply)




The queries are coming from either the router, or (more likely) one of the network clients via the router. There is nothing wrong with your dashboard - it is accurately showing the queries.

Let's take a look at what's being requested. What is the output of this command from the Pi terminal:

echo ">top-ads" | nc localhost 4711

Its strange, because of the way the graph looks for the queries, and clients, over time....its very cyclical
looking. Also it says 71.2 per cent being blocked...which is way higher than normal, and just 2 clients.
I tried a complete reload of ubuntu 16.04, along with a reload of pihole, but still see the same weird display.


Some client on your network is trying to contact, and that domain is blocked. That's the cause of the repetitive queries you are seeing on your dashboard.

This is not a Pi-Hole problem or abnormaility and reinstalling Pi-Hole will have no effect on the behavior of the client that is requesting that domain.

You may want to put a packet sniffer (Wireshark is one) on your network and see what client is generating this traffic. You would have to monitor all DNS traffic from all clients and you should be able to identify the offender.

Another option is to disconnect clients one by one from the network and see when the queries stop.

All the traffic from your clients is being shown as coming from the router.
